The context is the implementation of IOU notes as self-signatures on
public keys, so that the PKS infrastructure can be used for their
dissemination (and, thus, for credit reputation tracking). More on
the upcoming FC2008, in Cozumel. ;-)
I think you're splitting hairs in a delightful way.
David Shaw describes the way I always considered it. Non-revocable was
always supposed to be non-revocable. However, as I've said many times,
OpenPGP is far more syntactic than semantic.
On the other hand, if you're building some private system where you
implement those semantics, and genuinely don't care if (e.g.) my
product doesn't agree with those semantics, then go right ahead.
